Can I enforce a user’s membership in a group?

You can control whether or not users can add themselves to a specific group. But you can't prevent users from removing themselves from groups. To ensure that users remain members of specific groups (for example, an "all employees" group), maintain the group on an LDAP server and use G Suite Directory Sync to periodically synchronise these groups with G Suite.

What happens if a group owner leaves the company?

The group continues to work normally. As an administrator, you can manage the group or assign ownership to another user.

What is the maximum number of members that a group can have?

There's no limit to the number of members that a group can have.
