Do acids always have a hydrogen ion in them?

Do bases always have to have an OH group?

Not all bases have OH-. Ammonia, NH3 is a base, but is accepts an H+ therefore it is a base.

Yes, acids always have hydrogen as acids form hydrogen when they disassociate in water.

All acids will have hydrogen atoms so that they can dissociate and release Hydronium (H+) ions in solution to bond with OH- or proton acceptor Lewis bases.
