As per the documentation both do the similar work.

FOR REFERENCE :
The LastReferencedDate field is updated for any retrieved records.
A record is added to the RecentlyViewed object to reflect the recently referenced data for each retrieved record.


FOR VIEW :
The LastViewedDate field for the retrieved record is updated.
A record is added to the RecentlyViewed object to reflect the recently viewed data for the retrieved record.
